The Iowa Republican: Is Culver enticing a primary with Fallon?
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
Last Friday, I had a little fun with Ed Fallon and Governor Culver's
public tiff. Today I want to give that situation a more serious look.
There is something very serious going on between the Governor and his
former primary foe. Many people, including the Governor's staff, blew
Ed off by saying the guy just wants a state job. There is a good
chance that could very well be the case, but is that any way to treat
a guy who got almost 26% of the vote in a three-way primary with
almost no money just a few short years ago? It's not like Governor
Culver is some tower of invincibility. Culver is responsible for a
huge budget mess, tax and fee increases that hurt small business,
while at the same time, he has doled out millions of dollars to
out-of-state corporations like IBM, Microsoft, and Google in hopes
they will locate here.
